Building the Salem Witchcraft GIS

Digitizing the Upham Map

E. Preliminary Results of the Test Digitization

Once all the geographic features have been digitized separately, they can be viewed independently of the source material.

This basic data has already been output to postscript files for use with Macromedia's Generator. This software enables us to produce animations of the first month of Salem, showing where, when, and how quickly the accusations spread throughout the village, and tie these animations to a queryable database. The early results of these experiments with animated databases are available for viewing.
